The Mysterious Ruins of Miagao

It is not in Turkey or Greece, people. The Ionic pillars and the semi-arched niches are the only details that could give a clue to what this mysterious structure in Miagao was centuries ago. Surrounded by wild flowering vines, the mysterious yellow-stone ruins stands within the cemetery of the town before the Romanesque Chapel.
It is known to folks as a pre-Hispanic structure but the details on its remaining walls suggest typical Spanish colonial architecture. Its mysterious existence is a reminder that there is a great story behind the place where it was established.
This new discovery is worth preserving for it is an icon that hides a magnificent story that is yet to be revealed. If it existed and was ruined in a time when Moro pirates would raid the shores, then it is an icon of the people's hardships and trials. It is a reminder that Miagao is indeed one magnificent town that has many stories worth unveiling.
